Haddenham will have a new choir in September, when the Haddenham Pop Choir opens its doors!
Singing is fun, and therapeutic too; good for your soul, it reduces stress and lifts your spirits. For many years Gareth Malone has highlighted the pleasure and enjoyment that can be gained from singing; the strength of other choirs in this area confirms this philosophy.
Haddenham Pop Choir is a new not-for-profit community choir, singing for fun as well as performing in support of charitable or local community causes. Although we will perform locally, our main focus is the fun and enjoyment we'll have singing on a Monday evening.
Our first meeting is on Monday 11th September at 7.45pm at St Mary's Centre, Haddenham, HP17 8AH, and Mondays thereafter. Whenever you come along, the first evening is a free 'taster' for you to enjoy the friendliness of the choir and decide if it is a group you would like to join. For subsequent evenings the cost is £5 a night for 2 hours of singing and fun, including a 10 minute break for refreshment.
There are no auditions and no requirement to read music (although sheet music is available). We will be harmonising pop songs like 'Bridge over Troubled Water', 'Da Do Ron Ron', 'Oh What A Night' and many more, and I guarantee you will go home with a smile on your face.
Contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (01844 261171) to let me know if you would like to come along on Monday 11th September and join the choir.
